I am in so much pain for the past few months, particularly around
ovulation. Finally got an ultrasound and one of my ovaries is covered
In cysts and possible scarring (i think?). They want to remove one of my
Ovaries and also do a biopsy for the endometriosis.



Anyone have any experiance with this? And how to deal with the pain?
My painkillers dont help anymore:( feel like im going crazy with pain everyday.

My friend had to learn natural pain management techniques. Pain killers quit working for her and her doctor suggested natural pain management. Like the things woman do for natural child birth.

Huh okay. I did discover taking baths helped a little, but hard to find time with an almost one year old. Also some days I can barely walk. This just sucks:(

Ever thought of medicinal cannibus? There are other methods than smoking if you're not comfortable the other methods include tincture and edibles or even thc pills. I have anxiety and IBS (I know different from pcos but its pain) and I haven't been able to smoke since getting pregnant and now breasfeeding and it really SUCKS! But anyway I'm a testament that its one of the best pain management methods without taking narcotics or something else terrible

Unfortunately that pain will be there until.the cysts burst or.they remove your ovary/cysts and also the endometriosis. You'll feel better after it's all removed. Are you scheduled for a laproscopy to remove the endo?

I had endo when I was 18 and had a lapro to have it removed. For years I was on depo to help minimize the pain. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 yrs ago and have cysts here and there, but I have to deal with it. Its really hard and tough to deal with the pain sometimes especially when they burst. As for endo you can have a lapro done but for PCOS they can't do much of anything. They maybe able to put you on Metformin but IDK what that does to you, I've never been on it.
